Traumatic Brain Injury


Students return to school following Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) or Non-Traumatic Brain Injuries (nTBI) with unique and varied needs due to the sudden impact of the injury on the developing brain. The full effects of these brain injuries typically are not realized for several years, as the brain regions develop and mature over the years. Pennsylvania (PA) schools have access to the BrainSTEPS Program, an educational initiative of the PA Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education via PaTTAN, the PA Department of Health, and the Brain Injury Association of PA. BrainSTEPS is a Brain Injury School Consulting Program consisting of Intermediate Unit teams comprised of 300 educational consultants who utilize interventions designed from researched-based practices to help schools support students with TBI.
